Report of Protest At Fianna Fail UCD AGM.

category national | miscellaneous | news report author Monday April 14, 2003 14:32author by James Redmond - CFE (personal capacity)author email antrophe at hotmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Senators Speech Interupted.

Last thursday night in UCD a number of CFE activists picketed the annual Kevin Barry Cummann (Fianna Fail UCD) AGM against the reintroduction of fees. About 10 activists disrupted the meeting which was meant to be addressed by The Minister for Transport Seamus Brennan, who was replaced at the last minute by Senator Geraldine Feeney.

As the senator gave her address to the assembled throng of KCB hacks, CFE activists burst into the lecture theatre and held up placards. Slogans such as 'Education is Not For Sale! Lecturers Are Not Tools and Students Are Not Products', 'Education Is A Right Not A Privilege' and 'Education For The Masses Not the Upper Classes' were held up in a silent protest against the recent and continuing attacks on the Irish Education System. After listening to her bloody rambling speech, I regretted not making a placard with the slogan 'Not Only Do You Fuck Us Over-But You Bore Us To Death.'

Interestingly enough from what I could gather one of the main discussion points of their AGM was the obvious adverse reaction of students towards their governments attacks on education.

The protest was an ad hoc affair and organised at the last minute, the pressures of exams and the lethargy of a year of hyper activism within and outside UCD obviously having an impact. Last night was also a day for the discerning protester, what with the choice of Haider and Brennans possibile appearance, which was cancelled. It must say something about the evolution of UCD politics this year when UCD activists could make a choice of protest without any major worry about a UCD based one having insufficent numbers.

In response to the criticisms raised on Indymedia about holding this protest, when bigger fish like Hiader were in town that needed frying. Well, the simple reality was that because of UCD's upcoming exams, most of those at the KBC protest were not actually going to be going into the Haider Protest, so no harm was done to that mobilisation.

While the protest was small, and no way comparable to the level of resistance which has sprung up at various points in UCD this year, it is significant to note that there has been a CFE protest anytime public representatives from the governing parties have been on campus, ranging from 300 strong blockades to last nights smaller affair.

that would really really help-.
street wide banner.
turning your backs on them behind the
'Not Only Do You Fuck Us Over-But You Bore Us To Death.' banner in silence is really good too.
leave it to the trained activists to finish their visit with a splash of water.
:-) Karl Marx dimissio!

Try interupting one of our meetings and we'll show you what protest is all about, the Boys & Girls in the KBC are far to soft.

I think that there should be no platform for fascists. I would not classify John Harvey, Brian O'Farrell and thier mates in the ProLibSoc as fascists, therefore they have a right to free speech. Why bother interfering with a bunch of wankers that get kicks out of spending their time and money putting up silly posters, get back to the Science Computer room and play your games you sick computer nerds.

The "Pro Liberation Society are a joke just a trio of deranged Y.F.G.ers with nothing better to do. Are ye pro liberation of Palestine? the North? The basque country etc.... Go on lads keep putting the posters up im having loads of fun defacing them. Please note your group is talking the side of those "soft K.B.C'ers" ye hate so much, as well as loyalist paramilitaries,the U.U.P. and D.U.P. who are all queueing up to to Bush's bidding for a few scraps from the table afterwards.

'Max Dempsey' is John Harvey. He got the name from a journalist that writes in the Farmers Journal (Ask any Ag student it's true). Harvey recently had an article in that journal just the other week.

Try fucking advertising a meeting, and then maybe we can see what actual support your phantom society bloody has on campus you idiots. Stop wasting our time and fuck off back to playing quake.
